    The Secret Life of A Social Misfit

    Every new acquaintance starts with the question “what do you do for a living”. And, in an era with a high regard for successful and extraordinary lives, we always try to give a spectacular answer to impress the person asking that question. Let’s face it, we all want to be adored and become a subject of someone’s interest. Of course, nobody wants to be tagged as a social misfit.  Although the question seems like a harmless ice breaker, it’s actually one of the reasons why depression is through the roof these days.  The truth is, we’re living in a society where the level of respect you get from people depends…

    Marmol Cliff And My Enchanting Time Travel Adventure

    There’s an atmosphere of fear, darkness and uncertainty everywhere in Cebu. From a welcoming land of endless summer bliss, Cebu has turned into a somber island of barricades and masked troopers.

The annoying workmate, the supportive friend and the stranger you met on a foreign land – everyone you cross paths with sees and paints a different image of you. You can be a cut-throat villain in someone’s world, a harmless sheep in the eyes of your parents, or a symbol of hope to the friends who adore you. Heck, even the woman selling cigarettes on the streets creates a version of you…

    Confessions Of A Disaster Magnet

    So, where do I start? Well, I guess I should introduce myself first. I’m Aldrich, a father to a charming little girl, and I’m a bona fide disaster magnet. Throughout my life, I’ve been constantly followed by crashes, mishaps, setbacks and adversities.  Wherever I go, disaster follows me.  From a life-altering electric shock to everyday vexations, my life seems like a never-ending series of unfortunate events.                               And, that’s all because I make terrible decisions all the time.  I’m flawed.  Impulsive.  Rebellious. And, a terrible decision maker.  My records are full of blemishes, whether it’s in school or at my previous workplaces.  And, guess what? I will continue to live a…
